Salt Spring Literacy’s legendary Giant Book & Jewellery Sale is gearing up to be the best one ever!
An estimated 25,000 good-quality books fill the Farmers’ Institute hall in 40 different categories: tons of fiction, mysteries, cooking, gardening, history, travel and many more. Most books cost $1 or $2. Most kids’ and teens’ books are 50 cents. We also have lots of extremely special collectible and new books, and lovely quirky stuff!
The Jewels for Literacy section has an eclectic collection of gently used costume, designer and vintage pieces, with jewellery displays constantly refreshed throughout the three days of the sale. One-of-a-kind collector pieces from Germany, Scandinavia and Israel, plus hundreds of pieces of new silver earrings and rings are in this year’s sale. It’s a great place for Christmas shopping!
All book and jewellery sale proceeds benefit the Salt Spring Literacy Society. Learn more at http://www.saltspringliteracy.org.
The Rotary Club of Salt Spring Island, the sale’s main sponsor, will also sell coffee, cookies and muffins in a corner of the hall where people can sit and relax. Weather permitting, the club’s BBQ will also be set up outside.

With many new pipeline projects stalled & existing ones running at capacity, oil patch producers are turning increasingly to rail to transport their product. How safe is this? Should we be concerned?
